Impaired Optimus. Nvidia's newest switchable technology amongst g

Quiet and cool; Good application performance; Many connections; Hardware switch for WLAN

TFT's low brightness; Low contrasts & viewing angles; Short battery life; Spongy keyboard

The Optimus switching works great, but benchmarks show a negative impact on the hard disk's performance.

Asus N61J

Optimus hybrid graphipcs; portable proportions; HyperThreading; USB 3.0

Battery life isn't great; unfriendly to dual-head USB cables; mediocre at games

If you want a desktop replacement that truly does everything, there are more powerful portables to be had, albeit at a higher price. But if you’re looking to save some dough, and you’re not a fanatic about gaming, the N61J is a pretty good bargain.

ASUS N61Jv: 16in multimedia laptop packs two graphics chips to balance power and performance

 

This new Core i5 laptop from ASUS features USB 3.0, E-Sata, multi-touch and Optimus graphics technology in a 16in chassis

Overall it the ASUS N61Jv seems well targeted at multimedia users. The low native resolution could get annoying if you have a text-heavy workload, but it means that when the Optimus graphics technology kicks in and NVIDIA's GeForce GT 325M takes...
